Hi there,

when I was about 9 years old my family and I cycled all the way from Germany along the danube to Vienna/Hainburg. (we are originaly from klagenfurt)
I still love to think about the time we had and I definitely wanna do it again one day.

The best way to travel, specially if you have a bike with you isto go by train. There is a special ticket (1person, 1 bike) and I guess it is cheaper and easier for u as well.

The trip by train (from Viena to Salzburg) should be between 2-3hrs but I don't know!!!!!!! It can also be just under 4hrs!

check this address out (in german): www.oebb.at
that's the train/name of business in AUT (oebb) and u can find out about timetables and prices.

Enjoy your trip ;)

the ride should take about 2.5 hours. price depends on whether you go first class or second. for a trip that short, absolutely zero advantage to taking a first class ticket. first class is 62 euro, second is 39.80
